I said it a few times, actually.
So, now I can’t say I like it because that would make me a flip-flopper…are we still using that term?
Because I have kinda flip-flopped on my pumpkin-loathe.
I haven’t flipped into eating pumpkin pie…but I have flopped into a small-amounts liker.
I’m basically halvsies on pumpkin.
Sometimes it’s great, other times it makes me gag.
Kinda like the way I feel about quinoa or James Franco.
So here is a small amount pumpkin recipe For those of us who would rather suck on a slug than eat a slice of pumpkin pie.
Pumpkin Pie Pockets..heavy on the crust, light on the pumpkin.
The James Franco of pumpkin desserts. Everything is best in moderation.
The day before I made these I put together my filling. You could certainly use the pumpkin pie filling that you like best, but since I don’t have one I thought I would experiment a little. I made a pumpkin filling that among some other boring ingredients included cream cheese and butter. It worked.
You certainly don’t have to make the filling the day before…it was just a time saver for me.
When I was ready to assemble my little pockets I used pre-made pie crust that comes in the rolls.
I rolled it out a bit thinner. Thin is in, if you haven’t heard…
When they come out of the oven you can sprinkle them with a little cinnamon sugar (2 tbsp sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon)
Let them cool and then eat. These are great warm or at room temperature.
